Do a search with the email address of your IA account as the uploader parameter. Example:

http://www.archive.org/search.php?query=mediatype%3AMovies%20AND%20uploader%3Ame%40gmail.com

This would return movies uploaded by the user "me@gmail.com."

Thank you for the quick response! IA gives faster and better customer service than many organizations that charge you money! That eliminates the risk that others will be able to insert their videos into the list returned by my search link.

Now I have a different, less-serious problem: using this approach forces me to put a contact email address I've used for many purposes (and don't want spammers to find) on the Internet, embedded within the link. It's also a personal contact email address affiliated with a different web site on a different topic (bad therapy) than this current set of videos (which are on HIV/AIDS), so it creates a bit of branding confusion. Not the end of the world, but ideally I'd like the search email used to be a throwaway one that's affiliated with the HIV/AIDS site.

I tried changing my contact email to a contact email associated with my HIV/AIDS site, but that doesn't retroactively change the uploader email associated with the already-uploaded videos, so that didn't work.

If you guys have the time, at some point it would be great if you either:
a) made it possible to do a search for videos by Internet Archive screen name (best solution)
b) caused changing of the contact email address to update all the entries in your database for previously-uploaded videos

If you have the time to do a manual database change, I'd like the uploader email address for the videos in my account AIDSvideos to be changed to contact.us {at] AIDSvideos dot org

Thanks again for your great customer service either way!!!

When you upload you can type whatever you want in the creator, director, author, whatever. Put something in there and it will be a blue hyperlink that does the same as that previous suggestion.
